Taking Minecraft further thanks to #picademynorth

Week 4 – Today we took Minecraft a step further thanks to the wonderful worksheets Mrs Lowe brought back from #picademynorth. We looked at coding Minecraft to tell us the position of Steve, then we put him in the air and let him drop by adding 50 to his height position. Jack discovered if he subtracted instead of adding Steve went underground. Katherine persevered with her syntax errors on her Python script trying to drop Diamond blocks as she walked through her world. Her perseverance paid off in the end, she managed to debug her own code and make it run successfully.  Our attempts at getting Astro Pi to read the temperature were not as successful however our digital leaders are on the case and shall not be beaten.  Part of the fun of coding is overcoming the obstacles that get in our way! Next week we will be looking at Sonic Pi.
